Could your organization use a little sustainability TLC, for free?

by Shannon Houde

The Bard MBA in Sustainability Program is now accepting RFPs for its 2014-2015 NYCLab. The NYCLab is an exciting opportunity for organisations to work with current students on a sustainability challenge facing their business, nonprofit or government agency. Projects cover strategy, operations, finance, marketing, and supply chain management.

Through this course and consulting project, students enhance their technical expertise, industry knowledge, and professional experience. Students work in small teams with various corporate, governmental, and non-profit organizations to solve sustainability-related business problems.

As a returning guest MBA faculty member a second year running, I am excited to support current and future students in getting practical experience consulting on real world projects in the impact field.

There is no fee for first time NYCLab clients and no organisation is too big or too small. Past clients include Unilever, Lockheed Martin, and Community Development International. Proposals are due for consideration by 2 September 2014.
